and College of Humanities

San Diego, California

Date of Ordination: 2013

Favorite Scripture: Psalm 27:8

“I seek Your face, O Lord”

This is the verse I put on my ordination card because basically my whole life and even my priestly vocation is an effort to look for God. I believe we find him when we least expect it. Because long before we search for God, he is searching for us.

Favorite Hobby: Running, Reading, San Diego Padres’ Baseball

Father Nicholas, what are your main apostolates within Regnum Christi? 

I have experience, above all, working with ECYD sections and RCYM sections, both in the United States and in Latin America. I am passionate about helping young men discover God’s will for their life and equipping them to follow him with generosity.

Why do you love being a priest?

If I could live many times, there are a lot of different things I would like to try. But having but one life, there is no doubt in my mind: I love being a priest.
